Must-Do Things in Jacksonville – Part 8

Brace yourselves…winter is coming! Although, in Jacksonville, Florida, we’re more likely to be scooping leaves out of a pool than shoveling two feet of snow! It’s in the 30’s up north right now, while we’re experiencing beautiful 70 and 80-degree weather down here.

Sure, we can have some chilly nights in Florida, but for the most part, Florida’s climate is comfortable, sunny, and beautiful during the winter season. The snowbirds are continuing to make their way down to Florida. Since the city and state will be more populated, there is always more things to do! From festivals to concerts, there’s something down here for everyone. Not to mention, we’ve got some amazing beaches!

If you’re thinking about moving to a new city or to the state of Florida in general, we recommend living in Jacksonville. Jacksonville has some wonderful neighborhoods with great homes for you to buy or rent. At Quest Real Estate, LLC, we know the Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Beach area well, so we wanted to share with you some things to do and happenings occurring in the city during the months of November and December. We hope this list will make you think moving down to Jacksonville is the right move!
